Tinfoil for Facebook


**THIS IS A WRAPPER FOR FACEBOOK'S MOBILE SITE, IF SOMETHING BREAKS ON THE SITE, THERE ISN'T MUCH I CAN DO.**

Tinfoil for Facebook is for those users that require a Tinfoil Hat when logging in to Facebook. It creates a sandbox for Facebook's mobile site in order to protect your privacy and to avoid the ability others to track your browsing history.

Requires INTERNET permissions.
Feel free to check the source code here: https://github.com/velazcod/Tinfoil-Facebook

It also requires the "COARSE_LOCATION" permission. This is not used unless you enable "Allow Check-ins" on the preferences, otherwise Check-ins won't work. This option is disabled by default.

Recent changes:
v1.6:
- Bug fixes
- Translation updates
- Use material theme for Lollipop.
- Improve photo upload by using new features on Lollipop.

Small pictures. Worked perfectly until today. All pictures in my news feed are extremely small. This issue was not fixed by the latest update.

App is okay. Only reason I started using this app is because the official FB app takes up too much space on my nearly 4 year old device. I had already blocked unwanted permissions with Xprivacy. Unfortunately this app is not the best replacement. Especially the news feed jumping back to the top when you return from an album is VERY annoying. Also unable to upload pictures.

Simple and I love it! It doesn't claim to be something that it's not. Everything works as it should on the mobile site.
